Dr. Paul Hanna

Paul HannaSpurred by the idealism that we can, and do, make a difference, delighting in the accomplishments of students, and questioning to understand others better, Paul Hanna can best be described as “teacher.” Currently, he is an associate professor with the Department of Education at Columbia College, helping students become teachers. He has served as a school district reading specialist and teacher of students in grades kindergarten through high school. He has also served as administrator of an elementary school, a state agency, a nonprofit association, and a continuing education department, and a mentor with the National Urban Alliance.

His teacher role is best defined, though, as a husband and father to three sons, life’s most challenging, perplexing, yet gratifying job.
